Chinese web-site mag.udn.com cites 'supply chain sources' as boasting that the iPad mini three will be 30 % thinner than the present model and that the slate will get a new title, turning out to be the 'iPad mini Air'.
'iPad Air mini' makes a whole lot more sense to us, but there you go. The web-site goes on to say that, relatively less incredibly, it will use Apple's new A8 chip, which in accordance to earlier rumours is far more focussed on performance and increasing battery lifestyle than on raw electric power.
Just about as mild as air
Evidently the slate's thinness will be one particular of its main selling details, which makes feeling. It surely labored for the iPad Air.
Although the report isn't going to give any mention to bodyweight it is probable that the iPad mini 3 (or iPad mini Air) will weigh much less way too if it can be thinner, which would all over again put it in line with the iPad Air. Though at just 331g the iPad mini 2 just isn't just heavy.
At seven.5mm it truly is also just as slender as the iPad Air already. Shrinking it down by 30 % would put it at all over five.25mm thick, which seriously would make it amazingly slim. Apple's constantly been major on aesthetics even though so we can believe that it.
